Atto's Non Non Biyori Manga Gets 'New Anime Project'
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The wraparound jacket band on Atto's 11th Non Non Biyori manga volume revealed on Tuesday that production on a new anime has been green-lit. The announcement did not reveal the anime's format.
The manga takes place in the countryside, where the nearest bookstore is 20 minutes away by bicycle, a certain "Ju_p" magazine comes out on Wednesdays instead of Mondays, and the video rental store is 10 stations away. Hotaru Ichijō transfers from Tokyo to this school and readjusts to the slow life in the country. Her fellow schoolmates are Natsumi, Komari, Renge, and Komari's big brother Suguru in the third year of middle school.
The manga already inspired two television seasons (in 2013 and 2015) and two original anime DVDs. The first television series from director Shinya Kawatsura and anime studio SILVER LINK (WATAMOTE, Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) premiered in 2013, while the second premiered in 2015. Crunchyroll streamed both television seasons as they aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed and released both series for North American digital and home video release.
